PASCAGOULA — The Jackson County Board of Supervisors and the Port of Pascagoula approved using federal Katrina money to build a containment slab at a shipyard in Pascagoula.
The project, called an environmental slab, will be a concrete slab about 55,000 square feet, according to port officials, and will cover and contain contamination at Signet Maritime Inc., a shipyard on the east bank of the Pascagoula River.
The Sun Herald reports Fletcher Construction of Pascagoula was the low bidder at $523,000. The project will use Community Development Block Grant money designated as Katrina supplemental funds.
Port officials said the contamination was from previous shipyards at the Signet site and will allow Signet to continue working on the site.
